Captain Jinks, one night on Broadway, all alone
Read the news about the wireless telephone
Pretty soon his thoughts began to stray
Over seven thousand miles away
Then he went and drew a whole monthís pay
To phone and say

Hello Hawaii, how are you
Let me talk to Honolulu Lou
To ask her this, give me a kiss
Give me a kiss by wireless

Please state, I canít wait to hear her reply
For I had to pawn every little thing I own
To talk from New York
Through the wireless telephone
Oh, hello Hawaii, how are you? Goodbye

After he was through his phoning, he was broke
To his friends he started moaning, itís no joke
For the money spent to phone that far
I could buy myself a motor car
But I love her like a real Jack Tar
So, there you are

Hello Hawaii, how are you
Let me talk to Honolulu Lou
To ask her this, give me a kiss
Give me a kiss by wireless

Please state, I canít wait to hear her reply
For I had to pawn every little thing I own
To talk from New York
Through the wireless telephone
Oh, hello Hawaii, how are you? Goodbye


Mahalo to Larry W. Jones for these lyrics and the sheet music image.
